I've been reading the manga and will pick up the graphic novels soon. I'll try to watch the anime when it comes to Fox Kids this fall, but I hope it's not at the same time as Yu-Gi-Oh.

Personally, I like Amiardru (SP?), but not enough other characters have been introduced yet to pick favorites, IMO. Ren seemed like a good villain, and the fiance-girl looks very interesting.

What do you expect? The American producers have to edit out all the violence, bad language, and mature situations, because those type of things don't happen over here.:D

As for Shaman King, I've been reading the manga and have to admit its pretty good. I really like Amidamaru(sp?) and Ren's Chinese warlord guy.
Thats about it, I don't like Yoh at all. I think he's just some stuck up punk with an atitude, who can't do anything on his own.

But thats just my opinion:D

Hey, i'm a fan of the Shaman King Manga. I'm scared and troubled though because there putting the TV show on Fox Box, and there going to edit out all the swearing and bloody awsomeness. What are your thoughts?

P.S.- Me and Akki are planning to make a Shaman King RPG. Look out for it on the Recruitment page.:D

Heh. I really enjoy the manga... I, too, am worried about Shaman King editing... I mean, if it's on Fox Box they're probably not gonna pump out the uncut DVDs either.. :(

However, it'll be fun to see how they cover stuff up..

Well, as long as we still have the manga, we shouldn't complain about the anime stinking.. Unless nobody here wants to read.

There abviously showing animes that pertaine to a younger aydience, and Shaman King is deffienetly not that. They probably just took a look at it and thought it looked like its for younger audiences. I really wish Toonami would buy it like they did to Kids WB with Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh (i dont watch it though). It would be awsome on Toonami or Adult Swim, but adult swim is getting FLCL and Blue Gender soon.

I haven't been reading my Shonen Jump lately so I don't know what exactly is going to be edited, but this show is aimed for an older teen audience (From what I've heard) and the 4Kids dub alone is going to be edited to an extreme. The show wouldn't even been safe on Toonami, it'd still have to make the TV-Y7 rating.

NO I'm NOT SAYING THAT. I'm SAYING THAT IT WILL PROBABLY NOT HAVE ALL THE BLOODY, FOUL MOUTHED GOODNESS AS THE MANGA DOES BECAUSE THE SERIES WILL PROBABLY HAVE THE SAME THING AS THE MANGA, BUT IT WILL BE EDITED ON FOX BOX! And i didn't have it on caps lock either.

Well, for the most part, it'll be blood and violence they'll cut out.. (Well, the Ren/Yoh fight is really the only bloody Shaman King scene we've seen yet in Shonen Jump) But, considering it's all about ghosts and how The Shaman King can talk to god, they'll probably take out some of the religious references to be inoffensive. (I'm guessing..) Oh, and Ren swears a little bit, but really minor stuff they'd probably let slide on Toonami...

Oh, and for the most part, all shonen manga is aimed more to the 12-16 demographic. Or around that...

I know i've missed every episode in SJ cept the first one, BUt Who In Their Right God Darned Minds Would WANT!! to cut Shaman King.If They're going to put it on something, LEAVE THE FRIGGIN VIOLENCE IN!!! That's what thew kids these days look for. What's tv without a few people dying, or some blood flying across the room? Aye..Aye??

[B]Thats only the manga that contains that blood. Not in the anime. [/B][/QUOTE]

..Wait.. So you're saying that in the original, uncut version of Shaman King anime that there is no blood? Hm.. That's interesting..

But then do ya think that in Japan they had otaku complaining on message boards about how the animators "ruined" Shaman King by not putting in the blood? Heh.. Just a thought.

[B]They are. Its going too be on FOX BOX and there going too tear it apart. It never even had a chance. Hopefully théy'll put it out on DVD uncut. [/B][/QUOTE]

Hm.. Well, we'll see if FoxBox puts out the uncut DVDs.. They've never really had an anime that [i]needed[/i] much editing, right? Kirby.. That Foodon thing... I doubt Sonic needed much editing.

But, personally, I doubt it. FoxBox isn't really trying to get a wide array of demographics to watch their lineup.. They're mostly aiming for younger kids...

But we shall see.
